Title: Green Pastures

Artist: Grace Luse

Having studied under and assisted the ceramicist Edris Eckhardt, Luce shares many of the traditional traits and stylistic whims that denote a rural, often middle-American mythology. “Green Pastures” is based upon the 1930 Pulitzer winning prize play of the same name, written by Marc Connelly and depicting traditional bible tales relocated in the depression-era South from a primarily African American perspective. Luse’s ceramic singles out a pair of shepherd’s, freely expressing their forms as a single hand-shaped entity, their detail picked out in a handsome and naturally-toned set of overglaze.
